We are in the midst of renovating our site!

Our online store will re-open on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th with some exciting updates and improvements to your parts shopping experience.

If you already have an order in process with us, don't panic!

We are still processing and shipping orders from our warehouse as normal even while our site is offline.

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we are doing these site upgrades.

NOTICE

Order volume is currently high, and supply of many sought after parts/products is more limited than ever.

Please only continue if you accept that your requested items may not ship right away, and that shipment might be significantly delayed by unpredictable supplier-level backorder timeframes.

If you place an order request, we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days. Placing an order request effectively adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items.


Thank you for your business and understanding.

Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL
Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL


 
This Aluminum Case for VW Beetle based engines is a dual oil pressure relief, and is universal to be used on Type 1, Upright Type 2, and Type 3 engines.

It's important to note that Aluminum cases are HEAVY, ~20lbs heavier than a magnesium case. You don't realize how much that is until you pick one up!

Also, other vendors will not tell you this, but Aluminum Cases will run around 20F hotter oil temps than the same engine using a Magnesium case.

Besides the oil temps, the weight IS an issue if you have a Auto-X or Hillclimb car, putting an extra 20lbs in the worst possible place is something you should consider (do you REALLY need an Aluminum case?). Another reason we lean toward Mg cases is that, in our experience, Aluminum cases are prone to cracking -- but on the flip side, aluminum is easier to repair IF something goes wrong!

You can use this in Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 applications.
